Notes

This is a fix of shnid 32624

- the repeated section of Playin' (originally t10) has been removed and replaced by Deal, which had previously
been omitted
- new ffp, md5 and shntool output have been generated


original notes:

- these tracks have been taken from shnid 12846

- cleaned up the start of Jack Straw (soundcheck) and reduced patch of static at 0:02 so that it is almost
imperceptible. I then eq'd it as it sounded a little lifeless compared to the other tracks
- removed large pop at 0:24, reduced pop at 0:37 in Promised Land
- cleaned up transition between Deal and El Paso
- Playin' was orinially split into 3 parts, I can not think of any good reason why they shouldn't be joined
together, so I have!

Subject: The return to London
This wasn't a band unaffected by problems to the flow and this is a problematic show overall, though known for a great Mexicali.

Except for a B+ Jack Straw the best tracks have been released on DP7. The whole show has never circulated in AUD or SBD. Seems odd. Surely somebody out there has a dusty hissy AUD full of ambient cockney interjections."Royt, look et me 'ands, mite. Thar in foyv plices at once!"
So, it's not bad, just not as good as the next two nights of the run. Of what circulates:
1st Set:    B-
2nd Set:   C+
3 Stars (2 1/2, or average show, plus 1/2 for the Mexicali)

Highlights:
Scarlet  -  Funky and fast
Mexicali  -  they played this almost every show in '74 and never better than this
Deal  -  Was getting played a little less in '74 but this is a top-5 version of the year.

Subject: Not much here...
This is a mailed in show that borders on being a complete train wreck. There is really very little to redeem this performance. The rendition of Scarlet Begonias (included in DP #7) is certainly nothing special. The highlight of the set, a somewhat unique Truckin' > Jam, lacks intensity and is fairly average for the period. At least twice during the abreviated performance, Weir feels compelled to apologize to the audience for the late start. He attributes the delay to equipment problems (generator?), but given the state of mind of the band, excessive drug use (even for the Grateful Dead), and a ritual stash burning prior to the show, it's pretty obvious that there is more going on here than some qwipment issues. In an obvious attempt to compensate for the poor performance, the band peforms a double encore, but it can't save this show. (88 pts)
